How long to walk down the aisle?

I know I'm far out from my wedding but I'm bored today. I started thinking of songs I could walk down the aisle to (just me, the wedding party would already be finished).

I really like "So This Is Love" from Cinderella (FH and I are huge Disney fans) but it's pretty short -- about 2 minutes. For normal aisles, this wouldn't be a problem, but my venue's ceremony space is a decent hike from the building. You can see pics here:

Do you think that's enough time? I don't want to be booking it down the aisle but I also don't want the song to end as I'm halfway there and have to replay it or switch to another song.

So, married WWs, how long did it take you to walk down the aisle?

...This is what happens when I'm bored at work on a Friday afternoon.

    2 Min should be fine but cutting it close. Especially because there is generally lead time. To be sure though best bet is to walk it. Take a quick trip and do a little stroll.

    Not married yet, but I've played music in enough weddings to know that it usually takes a lot less time than you think it will. Most processionals I've played have lasted about 30 seconds. Your venue is stunning! But 2 minutes should definitely suffice. This is something you check at the rehearsal, and adjust speed as necessary. But usually brides walk faster than planned during the actual wedding.

    Thanks everyone! I'll test it out at the rehearsal for sure. I might even visit the venue soon to plan a few things out.
